Susan Paladini – Curator of the Four Mile Museum and the Coffeen Nature Preserve
This program features original photographs and a concise history of the Museum, Preserve, and the diverse plant and animal life in the area. During World War II, German U-boats operated in the Gulf of Mexico, launching V-1 and V-2 bombs. Some of these captured bombs were examined by the allies, leading to the development of the American JB-2 missile. Around 600 of these unarmed missiles were test-launched over the Gulf from the Coffeen Preserve Missile-launching ramps, which were later shipped to Eglin AFB. Besides its historical significance, the Preserve is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts and bird watchers, boasting inhabitants such as white-tailed deer, raccoons, red foxes, opossums, bobcats, armadillos, wild turkeys, rattlesnakes, alligators, and the elusive beach mouse.
